Carbon monoxide believed to have killed 3 in Tennessee home

Posted: Updated:

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Officials say carbon monoxide poisoning is believed to have killed three people, including an infant, in a home in Tennessee.
    
Shelby County Sheriff's Office spokesman Earle Farrell said two male adults and an infant in diapers were found Friday morning in a home in Memphis.
    
Farrell said the home's electricity had been cut off and the residents had been running a gas-powered generator inside the house. Farrell said a landlord had gone to the house with a Memphis Light, Gas & Water worker to turn the power back on when the bodies were found.
    
Farrell said the deaths likely were caused by carbon monoxide poisoning, though a coroner will establish the official cause.
